Is Access to Work right for you?
More than a few years ago, covid, stress and perimenopause coincided and I was struggling. My working memory, along with physical pain, was making life harder.
I was writing more notes, than usual, having to record calls to listen back to, alarms were pinging for wake-up, school runs, calls due. I was using free software to assist and my day was lengthening with cross-checks, notes to review.
Another impact was physical stress showing up as wrist and lower back issues.... that I was personally addressing with physio and osteopath treatments.
I had a standing desk and an ergonomic work chair. I was fortunate enough coming out of lockdown and home working to be able to keep the kit I had needed for working at home from Genius Within CIC.
I love working with and supporting people to achieve their goals... I am a Generalist, an Integrator. I was used to excelling at keeping the parts moving in the right direction with ease.
And I loved the opportunities that were presenting themselves for me to work for myself, for more women, at the same time, being able help more women in business.
BUT I needed support too.
What did my support look like after a consultation and a few emails back and forth?
👉 I got wrist, desk and chair supports
👉 I got an earpiece to reduce background noise (and improve focus)
👉 I tried out a #ReMarkable2 - it was not for me (then)
👉 I had my tech set up upgraded to run the programmes
👉 I got training on it all
I am fortunate enough to have had success with the Access to Work Scheme. I am able to support, and empathise, with the women founder-owners I get to work with every week— coaches, creatives, business owners, leaders.
I love the work I do as an accountability partner, a coach, and an implementor of systems and strategies to keep the women I work with on track, to create the space for more for what they can offer to the world using core business tools and practices, better!
I now have software, hardware and furniture. I am more comfortable, supported, healthier. I am more efficient , focused and able to deliver the excellent service I am known for.
